"Great Application for those that want to start typing and or want to improve their typing skills! and the best thing is that its free to download! I give it a 10" —Jose (a user), RapidTyping.com
"The USAID-funded Technology for Improved Learning Outcomes (TILO) project is recommending Rapid Typing to teachers and students in Egyptian schools, as we believe that is supports our project objectives to improve teaching and learning through the use of technology. Thank you for creating Rapid Typing and for making it freely available to support teaching and learning globally." —Ginny Woolley, Director of Digital Resource Development (a user), RapidTyping.com
"When you get up to the Advanced levels, the lessons are made up of paragraphs and passages for you to type. All of the passages we tested included both grammatical errors and typos, neither of which are terribly helpful when you're trying to learn to type properly. To complete the lesson satisfactorily, you need to replicate the passage, errors and all." —Download.com staff, Yahoo.com (October 1, 2014)

RocketDock Portable, a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher!
"One of Mac OS X's best features is its "Dock," a bar of icons at the bottom or side of the screen that lets you run frequently used programs, and that you can easily customize. It's a feature that's inexplicably missing from Windows ... Until now, that is. RocketDock... It's simple to use, it's free, and it'll make it easier to run your favorite programs and features. Given that, it's hard to pass up." —Preston Gralla, PCWorld.com (Jul 28, 2008 12:00 AM)
"...RocketDock’s bigger icon size lends itself well to live previews. ...when you minimize a running application to the dock, ...you get to see a miniature preview of the application window, right in your RocketDock. This is particularly handy for chat windows and video players. You can keep an eye on what’s happening without changing your focus. " —Michael Gabriel, r-tt.com (03/07/2011)
"Another interesting feature of Rocketdock is its add-on system which basically allows you to install new features, icons, images and stuff like that easily. You find icon packages on the official site for instance that change the look and feel of the dock significantly." —Dearon, ghacks.net (May 23, 2013)
RocketDock is a smoothly animated, alpha blended application launcher. It provides a nice clean interface to drop shortcuts on for easy access and organization. With each item completely customizable there is no end to what you can add and launch from the dock.

Dark Audacity Portable, a customised version of Audacity®!
"The big reason for DarkAudacity is to make the changes I wanted to see in Audacity. Normally such changes, because they are so visible, would require agreement of the whole Audacity team." —James Crook, Lead Developer of Dark Audacity
Dark Audacity is a customised version of Audacity® powered by Audacity, the free open source sound editor.
   If you're used to Audacity you should have no difficulties finding your way around in DarkAudacity.
  • The menus have been rearranged, but the functions you need are still there.
  • Sync-Lock button has gone. Use Time-Lock from the Tracks menu instead.
  • I've swapped Record and Record-Append. Now recording adds ot the end of your track, unless you hold shift down when you click 'Record'.
  • You won't get 'stuck in pause' now. Many items that were previously forbidden in pause are now allowed, and end pause when you click them.
